Get! Get down! Go on…. Get off the bed! For the love of…. really? REALLY? Ok, fine… FINE. You can stay on here for A MINUTE. Two years later you basically have be relegated to the very edge of the bed because because your dog, or dogs, have bested you in the bed game of Monopoly. How are they so good at it? It’s the eyes.

Dogs On The Bed – Unhealthy?

Derek Damin of Kentuckiana Allergy, Asthma & Immunology says that the biggest problem is allergies and asthma. If you are really suffering from either of those two things, you should consider the following.

1. A Hepa Filter
2. Allergy Shots
3. As a last resort, kicking the dogs off the bed.

And as an even more last resort, removing them from the bedroom altogether is a move you can make.

Outside of allergies and ashthma, having a dog on the bed really isn’t a big deal, unless of course you are losing a ton of sleep because you can’t breathe, the dog is kicking you in the face, snoring, and taking about 3/4’s of the bed.

Are there any benefits of having a dog in your bed?

A lot of people feel much safer when they are next to their guardian miniature poodle when they sleep. And I am sure you could find tons of people that say they couldn’t sleep without their pet. So, YES, there are potential benefits of having a dog in the bed, including an increased level of serotonin, the brain’s “Happy Chemical”.
